Another week has gone by without a blog post. Blog time has slipped away from me this summer since the kids are keeping me sooooo busy. By the time Tim gets home from work, I am ready to go to bed. I have skipped my 2am bedtimes and staying up late to do "me" things. I'm going to TRY to be better at it since I don't want to miss chronicling our memories.
It's Wednesday again and the topic is Style.
'I wish' .... I would get to open my closet and it would be a White House Black Market Boutique! I would have unlimited choices on clothes, shoes, accessories and my own shopping attendant who would keep bringing me new selections to try on!!!
Years ago, on one of our local independent tv stations, there was a daytime commercial for one of those fashion institutes and the girl talking said, "I love hats, I love clothes, I love shoes". Then the announcer said, "Does this sound like you" and I though, "Yes, that's is me". I never went to the fashion institute. I did however almost choose Fashion Merchandising as a major and took several fashion related courses in college.
Since I was little, I have always loved fashion, clothes, design and style. One of my favorite toys was Fashion Plates and we had an old blue sheet that I used to create all kinds of dresses with. Lately, I feel like my style has taken a back seat to mommyhood. I do miss the days of getting dressed up to go to work at the office and wearing heels, but I still loved getting all dolled up even if I'm just running errands. It makes me feel good and I know my little girly girl Sydney loves it when her momma puts on makeup and pretty clothes!
I love, love, love White House Black Market!!! I love black clothes. I love white clothes. I love animal print. They incorporate all of that at WHBM and they add touches of color at different times of the year. I don't think I have ever gone in there and not found a million things that I want. Not to mention, they have fab shoes and accessories. If you add your name to their Little Black Book, you get really great coupons and even a little birthday surprise!
Here are some of my favorite picks!!!
The girl in me still gets so excited when I shop and in the back of my mind, I still hear that girl on the commercial saying, "I love hats, I love clothes, I love shoes"!
